Three Phases: Cowboys-Redskins

    Every week, we'll grade the Cowboys on the three phases of the weekend's game.

    Offense: C

    There are a lot of empty numbers to throw around here. The Cowboys had more than 500 total yards. Kellen Moore passed for 435 yards and three touchdowns to go with his two interceptions, and Darren McFadden was eight yards shy of yet another 100-yard game as he passed the 1,000-yard mark on the season to finish fourth in the NFL in rushing this year. Pretty amazing. Terrance Williams had a career-high 173 receiving yards. But the result was the same. A serious problem finding the end zone and four turnovers meant just 23 points in a game that meant nothing for either team.

    Defense: F

    When the Redskins' starters were in the game, the Cowboys' defense had no answer for them. Kirk Cousins tossed three first-quarter touchdown passes to kill the Cowboys long before the game was actually over.

    Special teams: C

    Meh. Whatever. Dan Bailey didn't miss an extra point. Nothing else much to say here.
